She founded the school’s first Personal Injury Law Society providing networking opportunities for students with local Workers’ Compensation Judges and attorneys. She also served as the president of the Villanova Law Immigration Society.

She assisted refugees from all parts of the world who had fled persecution through the Clinic for Asylum, Refugee and Emigrant Services (CARES) first as a translator and later representing clients. Her Spanish fluency has proved extremely beneficial when working with parties whose first language is Spanish, and she looks forward to continuing to give back in North Carolina and South Carolina.

Natalie founded Natalie’s Cake Creations in high school and was known as Miami’s Sixteen-Year-Old Cake Boss after being featured in a local newspaper.
